"BGR reflects on recent comments by a Metro designer. 'Metro is a content consumption space,' Microsoft UX designer Jacob Miller explains, 'It is designed for casual users who only want to check Facebook, view some photos, and maybe post a selfie to Instagram. It's designed for your computer illiterate little sister, for grandpas who don't know how to use that computer dofangle thingy, and for mom who just wants to look up apple pie recipes. It's simple, clear, and does one thing (and only one thing) relatively easily. That is what Metro is. It is the antithesis of a power user.'"

    Some of you might see my kid as problematic, even deficient in some ways, but it's a great kid. You just don't know, you.
    See, he's not like others. He might not stand out in your mundane tasks and standard tests and whatyouhave, boring stuff. But in his own world, on his own terms, he's amazing. And I thank God for that.

    I see what you did there. Unfortunately, the mods didn't :)
